secretly photograph a plaintiff where he lives.
The detective may photograph the injured person from his car, looking for some sign that the person is not really injured.
Then insurance company says, “Hey, you bobbled onto the porch without crutches to get your mail. Your injury can’t be that bad.” And just like that, your case for compensation is diminished.
There still are investigators in insurance cases. But instead of parking in front of your house, they may visit your Facebook or Instagram or Twitter accounts, looking for something – anything – that will call your case into question.
It is easy to imagine investigators finding something on a blog or post that can be twisted to make you look like you have committed fraud.
So what is the best solution? It is fairly dramatic.
If your case is important to you – and we know it is – this extra degree of discipline is necessary. Remember: in an anonymous realm like the Internet, you don’t really know who anyone is. Don’t give adversary ammunition to use against you!
